I can't watch it as I think you are using an old version of quicktime. It might be better if you repost it with the lastest version of quicktime.

Hi Stephen,

My first impression is that the video was svery static. I would have liked to see more moving camera shots or at least some slow zooms. Having the static shots paired with many shots of random people standing around really can kill the flow of a piece. I would try making it shorter but tell more of a story with your better shots.

Thanks for the input Patrick, good point

I can't access the video either, but I suspect it's due to either a firewall or something not installed on the PC I'm using right now. (I'm on a networked computer in an office.)

I clicked on the "Examples" link for Pyxl. Their Images Sample opens just fine, but their Video Sample is a no-go. So, I'm also no-go for a comment right now.

Hi Stephen - downloading it now... will comment shortly.

I see you "will be offering BluRay". Do you mind me asking how you will be authoring, and what your thinking is/was concerning HD-DVD/BluRay?

(We don't really compete in East Sussex!!) :-)
